H. had something very similar not long ago: his evening nursings were like feeding a squid, with the wiggling and popping off and squealing. I asked about it on the breastfeeding board here, and someone reminded me of the Wonder Weeks' theory about developmental leaps. (www.thewonderweeks.com has a calendar of the developmental leaps, if you don't have the book.)
There's a big leap right around 8 weeks that involves babies figuring out patterns (and I think their heads grow some crazy amount, too, if I'm remembering correctly.) - H. has calmed down again since then. I also signed up for their developmental-leap alarm clock/email so I won't be so surprised next time.
